It has not even been a month since major parts of our city were devastated by catastrophic flooding and, as the media continues to report the increasing probability of more rain. At this time of lingering fear, it is important to remember that as quickly as the rains have come and gone, communal responses for help have been just as fast.
I am currently at the Greene Family Camp for a week and, as your Rabbi, I am extremely concerned about the wellbeing of everyone in our community. Please know I have full access to the internet and will be checking my phone calls daily. If this storm hits, please keep HCRJ at the top of your list of places to call to find help.
We may not know for certain whether these predicted storms will cause the kinds of damage that the storms of Memorial Day weekend produced, but we can be certain that the community is very well prepared to respond. May we all find comfort in knowing that whatever may come our community is there to help us.
